The Cowboys are coming off a 35-30 loss at home to the Rams to fall to 2-2 on the season. Dallas is 2-2 against the spread as well, covering in their two wins.

Green Bay is averaging 25.5 points and 361 yards per game on offense this year, They average just 74.5 yards per game on the ground. Ty Montgomery has 152 rushing yards, but is dealing with broken ribs and is doubtful to suit up tonight. Aaron Rodgers has thrown for 1,146 yards and 10 touchdowns. Davante Adams has caught 16 passes for 219 yards and two scores. He is coming off a concussion last Thursday, but is listed as probable to play today. Jordy Nelson has five touchdown catches.

Bet on Packers vs. Cowboys

The Packers showed last season that they have a championship pedigree to win big games by beating the Cowboys in the playoffs in Dallas. The Cowboys weren’t quite ready to take that next step behind a pair of rookies. I don’t think Dallas is ready right now either. The Cowboys have looked weak on defense in recent games and weak on offense in others. Green Bay has injuries on the offensive line that concern me, but I put my trust in Aaron Rodgers over Dak Prescott.
